Support Your Park!
This year, while we are unable to gather together for our annual gala at Mark di Suvero’s studio due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we need your contribution more than ever!
Donations directly support:
• Artists in creating new public artworks–>
• Maintenance of the Park’s beautiful natural landscape–>
• Socially-distant education and engagement activities–>
• Continued employment of our full-time staff as well as seasonal staff–>
We are so fortunate to have been able to stay open and operating throughout this time, but it continues to be a tremendous challenge. We sincerely hope you will consider supporting the Park so that we can continue our work. #SocratesStrong
